The Scientific Revolution: Crash Course History of Science #12

You’ve probably heard about a Scientific Revolution in Europe, lasting from roughly the mid-1500s to 1700. And we have some very good stories to tell from this period. But first, let’s talk historiography, or how historians have told history differently over time. The trope of the Scientific Revolution is a useful tool for organizing events […]

DC Resistors & Batteries: Crash Course Physics #29

DC Resistors & Batteries: Crash Course Physics #29

This episode is supported by Prudential. Resistors, batteries, and capacitors – these are just a few of the tools you use to build circuits, and provide power to the world around us. Today, we’re going to build some basic circuits out of resistors and batteries to figure out how they react and change, depending on […]

Hello, I’m Hank Green; welcome to Crash Course Chemistry. Today, we’re talking about the most important table ever. Not the table where they signed the Declaration of Independence, nor any table of contents, nor this table right here, nor the stone table of Aslan, NAY! It is the periodic table of elements, a concise, information-dense […]

Newton’s Laws: Crash Course Physics #5

Newton’s Laws: Crash Course Physics #5

We’ve been talking a lot about the science of how things move — you throw a ball in the air, and there are ways to predict exactly how it will fall. But there’s something we’ve been leaving out: forces, and why they make things accelerate. And for that, we’re going to turn to a physicist […]
